I first used S@H and set it for about 15 days (yes, bad, naughty let's move on).
I think the comp I'm using could handle it all. It did for about 30 days when first set after all.

Then I installed LCH and set it for about 15 days as well.

In future will bionc download me about 7.5 days from each project, or 15 days for each project. As it happens, I've now hobbled myself in getting the MANY W.U.s' I have as I'll now never make the deadline. Probably for each project.

Any advice would be hot. :)

If your resource share is set 50/50, then the WU's downloaded from both projects should cover 7.5/7.5 days.

But, this is only a rugh approximation. One thing must not be forget, the number of WU's you get are based on benchamrk results. On the other hand the estimated processing time is also an estimation.

Don't forget that the latest WU has to be returned before deadline beeing 14 days after download.
